HOLY MOLEY!<br><br>

I really went into it thinking eh.. how much different could it be, but man, they are fast and slick.

I know what you mean! I tried addis too for the first time recently--there's something really satisfying about them.

<div style="font-style:italic;">If you love them, try Knitpicks Options needles. Just as slick, even sharper tips, and GREAT cords. And less than 1/2 the price.</div>

Yup--haven't tried Addis, but I cannot say how much I love my KP Options. I felt like you with the addis the first time I knit with them. I ordered some size 8's when our puppy chewed up my bamboo circ in the middle of a project, and I am thankful to this day for our puppy's destructive habits! I bought myself the set for my birthday soon after.

Ditto. I have a couple of Addis and, while I still think they're great needles, I like my Knitpicks better. I'm so used to the sharp points, my Addis seem impossibly dull now.<br><br>
I'm glad you like you new knitting needles!<br><br>
peace, Beth

In re the Addi's, do a search on eBay for them. I bought maybe seven or eight of them last year from an eBay seller based in Hong Kong, and even with shipping to NY (which was only a matter of days, very fast) it was still half the price of buying them from the LYS or even online discount folks.

I love Addi's - they are the only needles that don't make my hands hurt....... unless I knit for several hours without a break. Not that I would ever do that. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:

I like the knitpicks options needles as well. Though I will say in smaller sizes (1s) that point was a little <i>too</i> sharp for my taste. I picked them up again recently and it was fine ... I think my finger got a little tougher.

Me neither! LOL.<br><br>
Sometimes I have to take advantage of the fact that dh and dd are playing happily in or out of the house to get knitting/crocheting done.
